Join us as we explore the FAU SeaTech lab. We'll get to see some of the amazing research being done right here in our backyard as we learn about marine acoustic, underwater robotics, hydrodynamics, and more. 

The SeaTech lab is part of FAU's Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering, and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. It is primarily located on eight acres of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the intracoastal waterway in Dania Beach, Florida, with valuable easy access to the ocean. Its team of world-class faculty, graduate students and engineers and technicians are engaged in federally and industry sponsored ocean engineering research and technology development in the following areas:

  • acoustics
  • marine vehicles
  • hydrodynamics and physical oceanography
  • marine materials
  • nano-composites
  • applied ocean systems
  • and ocean energy technologies.

SeaTech's 50,000 sq. foot building boasts:

  • oceanfront research laboratories
  • classrooms
  • docking facilities for its two research vessels and other boats from visiting institutions
  • machine and electronic shops
  • 60 ft wave/towing/flume tank
  • laminar flow re-circulating channel
  • ocean observation systems
  • extensive laboratories for development of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV)
  • mechanisms for corrosion control
  • high-speed underwater modem communication systems
  • ocean energy technologies and seabasing systems
  • several AUVs, including two 21” Ocean Explorer vehicles with depth rating of 300m
  • 21” Bluefin Odyssey III vehicle with depth rating of 3000m
  • 9” Morpheus vehicle with depth rating of 100m
  • the capability to launch, recover and operate AUVs
